News: Netflix Comedy For Katherine Ryan

Katherine Ryan is to write and star in a new Netflix comedy entitled The Duchess.

Variety reports that the six-part series is being made by 3Arts and Clerkenwell Films, the producers of “The End of the F***ing World.”

Netflix says that she will play a “fashionably disruptive single mom” whose daughter, Olive, is her greatest love and who is debating having a second child with her greatest enemy, Olive’s dad. In real life Ryan is a single mother whose daughter's name is Violet.

The UK-based Canadian will also be the executive producer alongside her agent Kitty Laing, Dave Becky and Josh Lieberman for 3Arts, and Murray Ferguson, Petra Fried, and Ed Macdonald for BBC Studios-backed Clerkenwell Films.

Ryan is also due to film her latest live show, Glitter Room, in America for the streaming network later this year.
